shakespeherian: I like McSweeney's. Without McSweeney's I wouldn't have been introduced to the works of Lydia Davis or Wells Tower, both of which I like very much. There is a large amount of content on their website that I don't enjoy reading, but I don't begrudge those who like it, and I'm saddened that there are people who believe they are better or more educated or sophisticated or cultured than I am because I like McSweeney's. I think their quarterly journal is of a very high quality, and I have learned more things from The Believer than from almost any other source, probably. I'm glad that Wholphin exists so that I can be exposed to short films, which otherwise are hard to find a venue for other than YouTube, which is choked with cat videos and thus difficult to filter.
I'd appreciate it if people would stop coming in to this thread merely to say that they don't like McSweeney's or that I shouldn't like McSweeney's.
I liked this list, and I liked the classic rock list, because of their pure absurdity.
